Gender identity is the no longer understood as male and female.  Students are being encouraged to explore gender identities that stray far from God’s design for sexual expression. The results are tragic and often irreversible.  Christian educators need to have a Biblical and redemptive understanding of this monumental and culture-shifting reality. Understanding the components of sexual identity is key to compassionately helping individuals embrace God’s design for Biblical sexual expression. With over thirty years of ministry experience and as Executive Director of one of the largest ministries to those with gender confusion and sexual brokenness, Ricky Chelette will help you gain a deeper understanding of why males and females struggle with their gender and sexual identities.
